March 6, 2009. A story posted today on the Columbia University Global Impact news website features a project collaboration between CCNMTL and Dr. James Phillips of Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health. The project will develop, test, and disseminate a health information management system in Ghana that relies on low-cost cellular phone technology. This system, developed in partnership with the Grameen Foundation, will be used to improve the timeliness, accuracy, and utility of information required by front-line health workers in remote communities of Ghana.
